Cellar/Tasting Notes
As with all of Conterno's magnificent Barolos, the 2006 Cicala is remarkably approachable and tends to show a lot of sweet fruit in its youths as well as notes of spices and vanilla. This is a very clean and polished wine of great elegance.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94
"The 2006 Barolo Cicala is another serious, austere Barolo that is tightly wound at this stage. Here the fruit is darker and more intense than in the Colonnello, while the aromatics tend towards menthol, pine, spices and all things balsamic. Sweet, powerful and layered, the 2006 Cicala finishes with a blast of roasted coffee beans, licorice and mint. This is an absolutely wonderful, complete Barolo from Aldo Conterno.
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Good deep red. Reticent, musky aromas of black cherry, game, tar and licorice; sweet but youthfully closed. Then much more backward and hard to taste than the Colonnello, showing a wilder quality and less early sweetness of fruit. Serious tannins currently give the finish a toughness. This will need a decade of aging."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"A beautiful red, balancing its sweet cherry, berry, floral and spice flavors effortlessly with the vibrant, firmly structured frame. This remains elegant through the long rose- and strawberry-infused aftertaste."
